Missed Poll: Forum: Tories by 3

I missed the last Forum Research poll, conducted yesterday, as it was not reported by the Hill Times. It has the Tories jumping by 4 points in Ontario, but losing the lead to the NDP by 2 points in BC.

The final projection might have been different for Etobicoke Centre (that's the seat that I moved from Tories to Grits to balance risk in Ontario), Kamloops--Thompson--Cariboo (very narrowly projected Conservative over NDP), and perhaps Vancouver South (ditto over LPC).

BTW, what time can we legally start discussing election results?

A jump from three points isn't important from a statistical point of view since it is inside the margin of error.

I'm surprised to see that NDP is almost relatively uniform in Quebec - same level both inside Montreal and outside the city.

Anon 12:08p: That's why the NDP does so well in the projection. It's first virtually everywhere...

That's because both Bloc and Liberal as well as many ex-Cons voters have flocked to the NDP. The difference is that in urban areas NDP had a greater pool to draw from. That is why it will probably win more seats in urban areas in the end.

Supports my prediction that the NDP will gain 5 seats in BC, 3 from the Conservatives and 2 from the Liberals.

I've extended the NDP target list I've been working on to include swings of up to 20% in Quebec since this is what the polls are showing could happen:

Here’s the Conservative target list:

I'm intending to blank out the old results and fill in the new results when they start to be reported. I hope the target lists are useful.
